Ling Gwan Kion

"Singaraja is the biggest city in North Bali. Under Dutch occupation, many colonial buildings were left. Besides Surabaya in Java, it may be another community where many Chinese people lived in Bali. There are two Chinese temples near the waterfront. One is a big and well-decorated Ling Gwan Kiong, and the other one is a very small Shing Wang Temple. Inside these two Buddhist temples,you can easily find many tablets, dating back to Ching dynasty, under the rooftops. During our visit, not even a tourist to be seen. Inside Ling Gwan Kiong, everywhere is calm and solemn. With tortoises swimming in a small pond, and on both sides of the wall, there are many pictures not artistically painted. We prayed to Kwan Yin with joss-sticks for good luck. Besides religious significance, cultural bearing seems to be a key factor. Outside Ling Gwan Kiong is a large parking lot just in front of the pier and Yudha Mandalatama Independence Monument."

          If you go to the old quarter of Singaraja, close to the Buleleng gate, you'll see a beautiful Chinese temple "Ling Gwan Kiong" (Temple of the Three Dharma's). The temple is very colourful and is close to the old port. Among the locals, this temple is known as Klenteng. This name is often used in Chinese Buddhist temples. It is one of the few Chinese temples on Bali.
Ling Gwan Kiong is a colourful and beautifully landscaped Klenteng. To enter the temple, you have to cross a bridge over the water of a pond filled with pink and white lotus flowers. If you look in the water, you'll see a large number of koi fish in the water of this picturesque pond, which leads to the interior of the temple. As usual, the Klenteng is dominated by the lucky colours red and gold. Golden Buddha statues and decorated with textiles, which you will find everywhere in the building.

Particularly impressive are the murals of gods. These are hand-painted on the entrance doors and surrounding walls.
This Chinese temple is considered an ancient and sacred Klenteng and was built in 1873.
From prasasti or old manuscripts that are found on Tao Kong Co Tan Hu Cin statue and there is lettering of Ling Yuen Kong written in Chinese that proves this temple was built in the 12th Thoing Ce year from the Dynasty of Ching (Man Ching).
The name of Ling Gwan Kiong means Istana Sumber Sakti or Palace of Power. Over one hundred years ago this temple has been used as a holy place for Chinese who follow Buddhist Tridharma, especially for Chinese people who live in Singaraja.

 

They ask for temple visit no admission fee. After your visit you can put something in a donation box. Most areas are easily accessible. You can walk in and out, but for the inner areas, where locals are praying, sacrificing or burning incense, you have to take off your shoes. Outside in the mini-garden you can see turtles, whether they run around the pond or on the tiled floor. The ponds are filled with water. The turtles are a symbol of a long life.


Ling Gwan Kion

On the walls of the temple are the signs of the Chinese zodiac and there are scenes from the Ming Dynasty. Behind the temple is an old bridge over a small river and several buildings at the site bear witness to the Dutch presence.

This temple was rebuilt several times. The biggest renovation was in 1970, and the last in 2004. During Chinese New Year is very busy here. There are big celebrations like the dragon dance and a spectacular fireworks display. If you want to visit the Klenteng Ling Gwan Kiong, the address is Jalan Erlangga 65.
